In many cases, people first start noticing the signs of ageing beginning to become more visible on their neck. While the face has a significant part to play in your visual appearance, the neck shouldn’t be discounted either as it is also quite a prominent feature and one that is just as fickle to the visible signs of ageing.

While the neck can often be neglected, resulting in requiring a neck lift surgery. However, in a lot of circumstances that don’t involve significant excess skin, lift procedures that don’t require invasive surgery can be a fantastic way to reduce sagging skin and increase the lift. You can increase support and structure to the jawline, neck skin, behind the ear, lower face, and more all without requiring plastic surgery in a lot of situations. While when it comes to the face lift Melbourne has plenty on display, however, more people in Melbourne and abroad are looking at the alternatives.

The Benefits of a Neck Lift

  • Improving the look of your neck and lower face by restoring a more youthful-looking neck and jaw line
  • Providing better support for your lower face
  • Surgery life procedure can last 10 to 15 years giving long-lasting results
  • Non-surgical lift procedures can provide increased flexibility allowing adjustments to your neck over time
  • Dermal fillers can increase volume to support neck skin and improve the look of an overly lean neck without surgery
  • Excess skin can be removed as part of your neck lift procedure reducing sagging and loose skin
  • Fatty tissue in excess can be removed by liposuction or double chin injections resulting in a lean face and neck

The Best Age for a Neck Lift

When it comes to neck lift surgery, it tends to be more beneficial after the signs of ageing have started to occur. However, those starting in their twenties often seek out a submental neck lift, while those in their forties often tend to get a lateral neck lift surgery as well allowing them to target both the front and sides of their neck. If you are on the younger side and have good skin elasticity but are concerned about the size of your chin, the shape of your jawline, or other issues involving your neck skin or lower face, there are a variety of options to consider that don’t necessarily require surgery — allowing you to refine your aesthetic without having to undergo permanent changes that result from plastic surgery.

How long does a neck lift last?

A neck lift surgery can be an extremely effective way to lift stubborn neck skin, especially for those that are having with more significant concerns about the state of their neck. However, there is also a range of procedures and treatment options that can be surprisingly effective at improving the appearance of your neck without plastic surgery. So if you are intrigued by the results of neck lift surgery, but aren’t so keen on having surgery, you still have plenty of options to consider.

Non-Surgical Neck Lift Alternatives

Thread Lifts: A procedure that often makes a great alternative to facelift surgery, a thread lift can help produce a subtle yet effective lift of the skin on your face which can also assist with the lower face and neck indirectly. This option is a fantastic procedure for those with only minor excess skin that want a less intensive option to a face or neck lift.

Dermal Fillers: When it comes to volume, dermal fillers are amazing. Fantastic for providing indirect lift by providing support to areas that have lost volume over time, or could use a little extra boost. Dermal fillers are a fast injectable procedure that can be performed in minutes with results lasting months. If providing additional volume can address your concern dermal fillers can be far cheaper than the cost of a neck lift or many other plastic surgery alternatives.

Anti-Wrinkle Injections: A skilled cosmetic doctor can use anti-wrinkle injections to target tight facial muscles that can be causing detrimental effects to other areas of the face and neck. This injectable procedure is minimally invasive and a very popular lift procedure that doesn’t require a surgical neck lift. This injectable can be useful on its own but also combined well with other treatments in many cases, allowing you to fight the signs of ageing while avoiding a surgical neck lift procedure in some cases.

How much does a mini neck lift cost?

Like other types of a surgical neck lift, the “mini neck lift” is one that lasts around 10 – 15 years. While the results will vary depending on the state of your neck, it can be an option to consider if your primary concern is long-lasting neck rejuvenation. If you are careful to take good care of your skin after surgery, this can help you maintain good results in the coming years.

To some degree though the results of any neck lift procedure will somewhat depend on how the ageing process is affecting you personally as naturally, you continue to age even after a neck lift or any other procedure. To make the most of the cost of neck lift procedures, it pays to help your skin stay at its best with a good skin regimen and practising sun safety. The price will vary depending on your requirements as well as depending on the experience of your cosmetic surgeon. It’s best to seek a consultation to see both if you are a good candidate and what the costs involved are in your situation.

How much does a neck lift cost in Australia?

The cost for neck lift procedures can vary significantly, depending primarily on the approach you choose for your neck or face lift. Surgery to provide a face lift can be quite cost-prohibitive for many people, and after completion, you may find it difficult to properly schedule a suitable length of time to recover adequately from your neck lift procedure. Lift procedures that don’t involve liposuction or the removal of sagging skin can result in far less downtime and often less cost as well.
